: the debate later turned to the president's health care law which romney says he will get rid of if elected. >> it cuts $716 billion from medicare to pay for it. i want to put that money back in medicare. it has killed jobs. >> reporter: but the president tried to bring it back to romney's own health care law which he says is quite similar. >> governor romney did a good thing working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model. it hasn't destroyed jobs. >> reporter: there were few fireworks and there were even fewer surprises. both candidates were deliberate going through their policy points. rob, paula, at times that made it seem look they were more concerned with getting through their checklist than really connecting with voters watching at home. >> all right, karen. a moment when they were talking what programs would be cut. all of a sudden you heard sesame street, big bird, big bird started trending. tell us what happened? >> oh, yeah, don't let your kids hear this one. big bird is apparently on the chopping block in a mitt romney budget. he said there

in this election is that mitt romney is actually good at something. ouch. jim sterling tweets, obama is winning the "looking amazingly condescending when the other guy talks" race. finally this one for you from doug benson. just 14 minutes until we can all go back to preferring the kand date we liked when the debate started. all from twitter. we have a lot more. you know, as far as what happened last night and i promise to hear from the president and it sounds as though he is still debating today. he spoke just a couple hours ago in denver. here he is, president barack obama. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> that was the president on last night's debate and, well mitt romney responded for the first time since the pundits and polls named him the winner. you will hear what governor roey said about the president's p

, perception is reality and the headlines have turned mitt romney's way. and the president as narrow as this race is if he wants to be re-elected can't afford to let this tighten anymore in states like florida. the president pointed to agreements between himself and mitt romney last night. take a look. >> governor romney and i both agree our corporate tax rate is too high. governor romney and i, we both agree that we've got to boost american energy production. one of the things i suspect governor romney and i probably agree on is getting businesses to work with community colleges so they are setting up their training programs. >> do you agree, governor? >> let me finish my point. >> what's the strategy there? why try to raise romney up to his level? >> yeah, you know, it was one of those moments where i was watching this on twitter where people who supported the president were literally having their heads exploding. this is where you see the obama camp sometimes reading too much into what makes him more popular and likable. i think they see, well, he's a guy willing to compromise and

to volunteer at the republican committee and do whatever i can to help mitt romney win this election. >> whereas before you might have just cast your ballot? >> just voted. i'm really pumped up. >> reporter: the program starts here around 6:00. trace atkins is also here, but he is not the main attraction, mitt romney clearly is. i'll tell you about some other key stops mitt romney is making in the commonwealth over the next few days at 6:00. julie carey, news4. >>> president obama spoke to a big crowd in denver this afternoon at his first rally since the debate. he said the man he met on stage last night looked like mitt romney but had different positions than the romney that's been on the campaign trail. >> the man on stage last night, he doesn't not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. and that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. >> the president is in wisconsin for another rally tonight. he will campaign at george mason university in fairfax tomorrow. >>>

this election as a choice rather than a referendum. last night the president let mitt romney dictate the terms of the debate as a referendum on obama's policies. he did not level that choice comparison. there was very little discussion, very little pushback as you say on mitt romney's policies. so it seemed like the president just spent his time defending what he did in the past four years without mitt romney ever having to really explain what he would do going forward. the only thing i can think is that the president was told first and foremost play it safe. don't make any big mistakes. don't do anything big that shows up in an attack ad. you can't do that in politics. you can't show up afraid of making a mistake. you can't play it safe. you have to be on the offense and win the day. the one thing i will say for mitt romney and for the republican party is last night mitt romney very aggressively moved to the center. finally seemed to commit to i am a centrist. i support very closely to where obama is. just slight differences. i think it's an acknowledgment that he really can't run on the far

before the election is over. governor romney had one good day out of a horrific campaign by any standard. now the question is what happens after this. >> the campaign was so horrific, chris, then the polls wouldn't be as close as they are and national polls have them neck and neck. >> i'm not sure what polls you're remembering ferring to. >> let me finish. romney is up in some of the daily tracking polls. so the campaign is not -- again, chris, hold on a second. >> that's not factually true. he down in the balance will you please every single tracking poll. >> again, chris, if you look at rasmussen over the last week, there's been days when they're neck and neck. you look across the board, it's very close. >> i'm on the phone and i can tell you the polling numbers off the top of my head, you are wrong. in ohio, he's down. in virginia, he's down. tell me the battleground states where governor romney is ahead. tell me the one. >> in ohio, he's within the margin of error. in florida, he's within the margin of error. and again, if it's such a horrific campaign, and you know a lot about horri

in this election, romney's huge tax cut for the wealthy. his supportive medicare vouchers. his supportive repeal and wall street reform. our ad we're running, two-minute ad in battleground states the two arguments the president makes against the romney approach is he wants a huge tax cut for the wealthy and he wants to roll back wall street reform. yooeng anybody in america missed the point the president made that those things are bad for our economy and bad for our middle class. >> why didn't the president mention we've had 30 month of private sector job growth? that's a heck of a number, considering the fact that there's been so much obstruction coming from the republicans and even on that the president seemed timid when he pointed out what he's been dealing with the republicans. and the biggest story since the convention has been the 47%. none of this was mentioned tonight by the president. clear openings to put mitt romney on the defensive. why didn't he do that? >> first of all on the 47%, that's an issue that just about 100% of the country knows about. it's been chewed on over and appropri

obama leads romney by 1%. >>> many virginians are keeping close tabs on this election, especially the ones entering the job market. hundreds of george mason university students watched, and said they were grading the candidates on what they had to say as well as how they said it. >> i'm not getting a sense of obama as the commander in cheesm. >> and romney? >> romney is really laying it down and being very detailed for once. >> my mind was already made up. but i became a lot more informed. >> i like when they're talking about the health care stuff. and about the middle class. because i'm middle class, so a lot of that stuff affects me. >> president obama plans on campaigning on the george mason campus tomorrow. and we'll have much more on last night's debate throughout the morning. mark murray will join us later in the morning to break down what the candidates needed to accomplish and whether they were successful. >>> right now, though, some breaking news. >> good morning. turkey has renewed strikes on syria after an attack that left five people dead. we just got some video into t

from new york, denver los angeles and washington. president obama and governor romney faced off tonight in the first of three debates before election day on november 6th. domestic policy was in focus during the 90-minute showdown at the university of denver. the platform gave govern romney an opportunity to reignite his campaign which has suffered some this summer. they sparred across a range of issues. >> there's a various done of small businesses across the country saying what's the effect of obamacare in your hiring plans. three quarters said it makes us less likely to hire people. i just don't know how the president could come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment and economic crises at the kitchen table, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obamacare instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> the irony is that we've seen this model work really well, in massachusetts. because govern romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model, and as a consequence,
